Americans set their clocks back an hour early Sunday with many wondering why the practice is still in place.

In March, the Senate passed the "Sunshine Protection Act" -- a bill that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent throughout the entire year. The bill has since stalled in the House, with many members questioning whether the move would be a good idea.

At the time the Senate passed the bill, Daylight Saving Time had just begun, the "spring forward" one hour that begins in March and ends in early November.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., championed the bill, claiming that it was supported by an "eclectic collection" of senators and called the switching of clocks back and forth disruptive.

The House has not passed the bill and does not consider it to be "much of an issue" going forward, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a speech in March.

At the time of the bill's Senate passing, a poll by Monmouth University showed that 61% of Americans were in favor of ending Daylight Saving Time, and that 44% of Americans would prefer to make the "spring forward" period permanent.

Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., said in March that the bill had not reached a consensus yet in the House and echoed Pelosi's opinion that the bill "is not a priority."

Pallone said that he is wary of repeating Congress' mistake from the 1970s when a similar bill was passed and quickly repealed due to reports that it led to darker mornings and groggy moods.

"We don't want to make a hasty change and then have it reversed several years later after public opinion turns against it," Pallone said. "Which is exactly what happened in the early 1970s."

The status of Daylight Saving Time drew attention on social media this weekend.
